How to match cushions to your sofa

by ACP Group 12 Apr 2023

Are you currently looking at your living room, and thinking… It’s fine! It may not look bad, but sometimes that’s not enough. Maybe your sofa simply looks plain and uninspired. Maybe your wallpaper is that modern shade of white that makes everything sleek and premium, but that doesn’t dazzle your eyes. Well, if you’re facing any of these problems, fear no more. Here at Main and Crawford, we have a simple solution that will help you brighten up even the dullest of environments.

If you’d like to liven up your living room and add that wow factor without having to redo your entire lounge’s interior décor, why not try buying a few new sofa cushions. Sometimes, a small splash of colour in an otherwise plain room can make all of the difference. This is the power that the perfect cushion can give you.

However, you can’t just choose any old cushions. If you choose cushions that fail to match your particular sofa, this could turn your living room into a disastrous eye sore. In this blog, we will explore how to choose the right cushions, and ensure that they not only match your sofa, but complement your entire living room as well.

1. Coordinate your Cushion choices with existing features

This is one of the most important tips, if you’re looking to brighten up your living room through the addition of a few gorgeous cushions. Selecting cushions that have the same colour as your sofa is typically counterproductive. Cushions like these will only add to the monotone atmosphere. However, if you’d like a lively ambiance, try choosing cushions that match, either in colour or pattern, with other elements within your room. Maybe you have a green plant in an all-white room. A set of green and blue stripped cushions will match perfectly in this case, and complement your living room as a whole.

2. Choose bold complementary colours that challenge your sofa

If you’re looking to spark up your living room with some new cushions, the best thing that you can do is to select cushions that challenge your sofa. Choosing a bold red and white chequered pattern to complement a stark all white couch can have an incredible effect. As such, selecting a daring blue to match a bright yellow colour will also work well in taking your living room to the next level. However, you can’t just throw together any old colours and hope they will work (e.g. green and pink, Yuk). The key to getting this write is to use complementary colour combinations such as yellow and purple, or red and green.
